The Neighborhood

The Freemason district is a wonderful gem of a neighborhood nestled sweetly between the bustle of downtown Norfolk and the arts district surrounding the Hague. You’ll find cobblestone streets, historic homes and charming green spaces with towering trees. The Wainwright Downtown is near the Freemason stop on Norfolk’s sensational light rail, the Tide, and a short walk to the Elizabeth River.

You’re just a short Tide ride to MacArthur Center mall, which is anchored by major retailers Nordstrom, Dillards, and Williams-Sonoma but you’ll also find that Norfolk has a wonderful community of small, local businesses. Add a bit of sweet scented adorableness to your new home with memorable floral arrangements by Studio Posy and take advantage of unique (and shockingly affordable) handmade picture framing from Nest – both located inside Selden Arcade.

You’ll find plenty to eat and drink on Granby and nearby, as well as a hopping music and club scene at Granby Theater, the NorVa (The National’s southern sister) and Gershwins on Granby. If you’re looking for more of an acoustic vibe, you’ll find you have your pick of fantastic choices in any direction. Norfolk is quickly developing a reputation for launching some incredible talent - and you'll be the first to watch them play.

Looking to host an impromptu gathering? Text Carry Norfolk and within minutes they'll deliver gourmet appetizers, main courses, emergency dinners and desserts and anything else you might need for your party.

From baseball to breweries, coffee to clubs; you’ll find plenty to do in your new Norfolk neighborhood home!
